It only took a week of watching NCIS while I cut out almost 200 stickers, but I got it done! Mystery Sticker Packs are in the shop while they last! Each pack contains a random assortment of sizes and stickers from different collections. Some of the collections include: Hello Quirky Wizards + Wizard Villains, Supernatural, Doctor Who, and Studio Ghibli.
I used sheets that I had printed when my computer was crashing and I was printing like a mad woman. I'm currently in the process of redoing my stickers into sheets using my Silhouette Cameo, which will make things easier on my hands. I'm hoping to do more planner size stickers, so you get more on the sheet + the sizes work better for in your planner.
I'd love some feedback! Let me know what you'd like to see! xo

Yesterday I updated the shop with some of the fabric samples, notebooks, and VERY LAST of the HQ Wizard cards I've been hoarding. Things have been going fast (especially the cards!).
I'm sad this design won't be around any more, but I just finished sketches for another Harry Potter-ish design. Hopefully it will fill that Harry Potter hole in everyone's hearts.
You may have noticed all my stickers are gone from the shop. I am currently working on mystery sticker packs with what I have printed (and not cut yet >_<) of some of my favorite geeky designs. I've decided to redo the stickers (possibly on sheets) so I can use my cutting machine instead of cutting them all out by hand.** There will be Harry Potter/Villains stickers in these mystery packs since I won't be selling them any longer.
Make sure to check out what's left in the shop and keep an eye on Instagram or Facebook for when the mystery packs will be released!
Thank you for all the support! xo

Yesterday I got an email from Spoonflower saying all my wizard designs have been removed by request from Warner Brothers. I knew it would be coming eventually since my wizard designs are fan art and I don't own Harry Potter. I was still gutted.
I've already received emails from people asking me to put back up the designs, but obviously I can't do that. I also don't want to be sued by Warner Brothers because of some cute fan art I initially made for myself.
Truthfully, I've been leaning towards fazing out my fan art. I have kept it up as long as possible because it was supporting my business while I have been trying to work on new products. I am hoping to find a way to make fan art in a way that isn't infringing on any copyrights (is that even possible?).
If you want to more information just google 'fan art and copyright infringement'.
I do still have a few wizard products that I will be selling on my own website, but I will not be remaking them in the future. I will probably be removing my wizard design from Society 6 as well.
I still have some cute fabrics available on Spoonflower and I have plans to make new designs (although I'm rethinking if I should even bother with the Studio Ghibli one I was working on T_T).
Thank you to everyone for the support and love of this design! xo

I'm pretty proud of myself for actually keeping up with my 100 day project and working on other sketches. I haven't really posted much, except glimpses in my sketchbook on Instagram stories.
This week I thought it would be fun to draw what I was wearing, but only managed one day. Things have been pretty busy around here.
I'm not sure if I would actually leave the house in this outfit, but it is something I wear around the house. I've always been really
I am going to try and do more of these quick outfit of the day drawings in the future and hopefully share some more of my cute food sketches.
Have a great weekend!

I've seen several May Goal posts floating around, maybe it's because I've been on Twitter more, but I decided to try and hold myself accountable by posting my goals. I made a few goals for myself last month that I actually completed. Woot!
1. Get wooden heart ornaments painted. This is on my to do list every week....
2. Design 2 new fabrics. I'm currently trying to focus on a Ghibli + possible Star Wars design.
3. Continue 100 Day Project. I am still working on this drawing challenge! I haven't really posted much of my work, but I'm still trying. Some weeks I end up playing catch up by doing several days at once, but hopefully I'll get better.
4. Make more vegetarian/vegan meals. One of my New Years resolutions was to eat more vegetables. I bought a new cookbook (Isa Does It) and plan to make all the yummy things! I already have 4 recipes planned for this week.
5. Continue blogging once a week. I'm not a hard core blogger, but I think it helps as an artist/small business person to keep people informed...so I'm working on it. :)
6. Finish putting together my pixel afghan. This thing is a monster and I keep putting it off because I hate the sewing part. I also want to finish so I can start a new crochet project.
7. Organize art closet. It's like Tetris in there and I can't find anything.
That seems like a lot to work on...I've definitely been more motivated since I started going to these exercise classes 3 days a week (yay endorphins!) Getting out of the house has been a big thing for me this year! I've even gone to a few geek girl events. Sadly, I haven't been able to attend any Sketch Club meetings because we've been out of town a lot this year.
What are your goals for May? xo

I realized I had never made these cute Supernatural guys into stickers! They are now available in my shop!
I made these a tad smaller, so you get 2 of each design. I'll be testing out new stuff + would love your feedback!
PS If you are a fan of Supernatural, you can find this design on fabric too!
Short post, but I hope everyone is having a good weekend! xo

I've finally reopened my shop! I kept thinking I needed to wait until I've made a new collection + products. I couldn't decide what platform I wanted to use. Stuck in indecision, I just didn't do anything.
I finally kicked myself out of my weirdness and just decided to reopen. I had so much encouragement from everyone, which made me remember people liked some of my older products. I am slowly working on new stuff, but for now you can find some old favorites. (There are new sticker packs and fabric samples available though.)
I decided to use both Etsy + Big Cartel. (Etsy for the marketplace and Big Cartel for my own site that is under my control for the most part.)
Etsy is always making changes, which is hard to keep up with or annoying for sellers + buyers. Big Cartel is a flat fee and super chill, without all the craziness of Shopify. I almost thought about Storenvy again, but last time I ended up charged with so many hidden fees I didn't feel it was worth it. I would recommend trying them out to find what works for you. (End platform rant)
Thank you for the continued support and look forward to new products soon!! xo
